  1. It`s dangerous cutting vegetables like this! Use a chopping board. Those who know the recipe from their grannies will tell you that the stuffing and the eggplants should be precooked. What makes this dish so famous is the melting in mouth feeling of the food. This will never happen in 45 min.

  2. I am now eating this and it’s a great recipe. I made it for the second time, the first time I did it with the light purple eggplants which was also good.
    But, both times I got plenty of the vegetable salad left so I had to make much bigger slits in the eggplants to fit at least 2/3 of the filling in. If you are making this recipe I’d suggest you use only 2/3 of the vegetables of you’ll have a plenty of leftover.

  3. I can’t wait to try this recipe! This is random but the way you cut vegetable reminds me of my grandmother. She never used the cutting board and I remember thinking as a child that she was the coolest person on Earth to be able to do that lol!
